Some allege big loud cars question a gentleman's manhood, but in the White House, it's the size of a wall, according to one Congressman.
During a Sunday interview with MSNBC's Alex Witt, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) detailed what his Budget Committee is considering while it searches for a deal that could end the president's government shutdown.
What we would demand in return is a sensible policy," the now-Ranking Member said. "You know, Alex, we gave the administration 1.3 billion, I think, in the last budget year for border security. They haven't spent that."
He noted that this budget argument doesn't actually have anything to do with border security or keeping the country safe. It's about the president himself.
"But when it came to the reality of the president's claim for securing the border, this really isn't about a fence or a barrier or a wall, this is manhood measurement for Donald Trump, that's what it is," Yarmouth said. "He's also proven himself impossible to negotiate with. This is the guy who wrote The Art of The Deal but you can't tell him one thing and have him change his mind in another."
Indeed, the Senate was told by Vice President Mike Pence that the deal would be signed by the president, but at the last minute, he pulled out of the deal. Many officials had already flown home for the holidays, believing the vice president knew what he was talking about, only to be forced to return and search for another budget deal.
Trump's 2016 campaign promise was that Mexico would pay for the wall.
"It's so easy," Trump said during one speech. "Just rely on me."
